    In this Spanish sentence structure lesson My goal is to teach you how you can conjugate common Spanish verbs in the preterit tense. The best way to conjugate usual Spanish verbs in the preterit tense (or past tense) is very simple. Normally Conjugation of Spanish verb Repetir drop the -AR, -ER, or perhaps -IR ending and add yesteryear tense ending according to the pronoun you want to make use of; regular verbs ending for -AR stick to different pattern than usual verbs concluding in -ER and -IR. Here are the endings per pronoun to get the verbs in preterit tense, you should take the time to remember both graphs.

    Preterit tense endings to get verbs closing in -AR

    Pronoun during Spanish, History tense stopping, Pronoun in English

    y yo, -é, I just

    tú, -aste, you

    él/ella, -ó, he

    usted, -ó, you (formal)

    nosotros/nosotras, -amos, we (masculine or feminine)

    ustedes, -aron, you (plural)

    ellos/ellas, -aron, they (masculine or feminine)

    Preterit tenses endings for verbs concluding in -ER and -IR

    Pronoun on Spanish, Past tense closing, Pronoun on English

    Por mi parte, -í, I just

    tú, -iste, you

    él/ella, -ió, he

    usted, -ió, you (formal)

    nosotros/nosotras, -imos, we (masculine or feminine)

    ustedes, -ieron, you (plural)

    ellos/ellas, -ieron, they (masculine or feminine)

    Now look into both structures using the verbs amar (to love) and comer (to eat); the preterit tenses endings are emphasized through bold so that you can identify associated with their own pronoun. Observe that the present and preterit tense conjugation may be the same designed for nosotros and nosotras. You know how to conjugate regular Romance language verbs from the preterit tense.

    amar – to take pleasure in

    yo amé – I loved

    tú amaste — you liked

    él/ella amó – they loved

    usted amó – you liked (formal)

    nosotros amamos supports we enjoyed

    ustedes amaron – you loved (plural)

    ellos/ellas amaron – these loved (masculine or feminine)

    comer — to eat

    Bear in mind that there are also various verbs that happen to be irregular in the preterit. A handful of may adjust their stem or present minor adjustments.

    This ends today’s Romance language lesson in order to conjugate frequent Spanish verbs in the preterit tense. In order to continue understanding this subject, I recommend that you just either investment or down load the demonstration copy of Learning Just like Crazy’s active Verbarrator computer software. Although I think the name of the applications are horrible, some of my learners have used the Verbarrator software successfully and really increased their ability to conjugate Romance language verbs.
